In the crowded field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. It delivers its mattresses via truck, instead of in the form of a box. And even though, like other sellers on the internet they have progressively increased its inventory, Saatva remains focused on offering a variety of “luxury” models, each priced at in the range of its Youth model, over $1500 (for one queen size). Saatva Mattress Youtube
Sure, there’s a whole galaxy of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring greater coil counts and more refined materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed choices that are available from an online business.
Over the last three years, our team has tested Saatva’s insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently been as one of our top choices in our guide to the top foam mattresses and the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid as well as researched the design and construction of the rest of the beds from Saatva’s line-up.The majority of mattresses sold online are hybrids or foams, therefore it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently purchase on the internet.
Pocketed coils give the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce close to the top. A extra soft top makes it more comfortable. Also, as with the rest of Saatva’s mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in a box. Saatva offers an extensive 180-day trial and easy returns.
It’s all foam. Loom & Leaf is made of more dense memory foam than most mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shift over time. This is why it’s more suitable for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds.
The quilted and thick cover is more cushier and robust than the sock-like covers that are found on many foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory-foam layer underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Like you would expect from a memory-foam bed The Loom & Leaf limits motion better that an innerspring Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap, and is intrinsically robust. Talalay is less brittle than Dunlop latex, which is typically found in cheaper latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while the Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) It could prove useful if you’re not certain which one you prefer, or if your needs change with time.
This isn’t a traditional cushy mattress, but it provides a comfortable cushion, excellent edge support, and a subtle springiness.
Due to its inherent quality it is recommended that the Zenhaven should work well for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Making sense of Saatva
Saatva’s portfolio of beds-many with a choice of firmness levels and catering to almost every comfort preference-includes:
- Saatva Classic (innerspring)
- Loom & Leaf (all foam)
- Zenhaven (all latex)
- Saatva Latex Hybrid (latex with coils)
- Solaire (a Bed with adjustable air chambers)
- Saatva HD (a latex-coil hybrid specifically designed for those who weigh 300 to 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t yet taken a deep dive into Saatva’s “natural” claims of Saatva or others “eco-friendly” brands.
But we do know that Saatva uses thistle pulp or organic wool as a fire retardant (as as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its mattress covers.
Like other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers to provide “optimal spine support” We’re not as impressed with those features but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s quick customer service and its durable coils and foams. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Saatva Video Review
Who’s it intended forThe Saatva Classic will likely be a good fit for those who like a soft (but not too big and bulky) top layer as well as an extremely durable, supple feel. This Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offering) that we tried, should suit people who are back-, sidestomach and side-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is geared to side-sleepers, as does the Firm version for stomach- and back-sleepers.
The way it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the brand’s most sought-after model. We found it to be soft to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It starts out with an incredibly firm feel but it softens slightly after a break-in period of a few months.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online without the convenience commonly associated with purchasing the traditional boxed foam mattress. It has 416 strong, solid coils at its base for support, as well as 884 individual, more flexible coils that are stacked over top to provide pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam included in the mix, however the real cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion that is sewn beneath the top layer). The resulting feel has broad appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a plushness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We tried the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test for mattresses with innersprings (it’s additionally available in 11 1/2″) and it racked up the second-highest number of top-rated scores (nine among 39 participants) in the $1,000 to $2,000 category (which comprised it alongside the Avocado as well as the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects loved the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the test that day which included mattresses that cost twice as much and two of the nine testers selected the Saatva Classic as their second choice overall.
In the case of the test at home I was looking at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I’m not a fan of a bulky bed, so I appreciated how the Classic’s Euro top provided what seemed to me to be just the ideal amount of cuddle. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s roll made me wake up. To me, the buoyed up feel was worth the sacrifice in motion isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not in sale (though it is often), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels thick and luxurious. We also like that you can choose between three levels of firmness-Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft, or Firm. This means you’ll find the right one regardless of the mattress you’re sleeping in. In contrast to the more sluggish WinkBed, another pick in our innerspring mattress guide The Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that “new mattress smell” has already dissipated in the factory and during transport) This “white gloves” delivery service is completely free. The company offers a generous 180-day trial period, and a 15-year warranty.
We don’t like: If you’re not fond of a bouncy mattress, or if you’re insensitive to your partner’s movements while in bed You probably won’t enjoy Saatva Classic. Saatva Classic. While the top coils are individually wrapped, the bottom coils aren’t, so the bed has some motion transfer than our other innerspring choices like that of the WinkBed. If you’re not a fan of any bounce it’s better to go with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
Saatva Classic is a great mattress for couples. Saatva Classic also requires a bit of break-in time. When we first tried the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; after a year and half later, we discovered that it had softened a bit but in a nice way (at least for me). This is not the case with a “Soft” mattress However, those who like that may prefer this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tested yet.
The company boasts of an “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” my husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) was still in search of more support from the Luxury Firm. He might have discovered that feature in the version for Firm but we haven’t tested it yet, so we can’t be sure. In general, we are not particularly impressed by zoned technology, because people come in various sizes and shapes and they may spread in ways that don’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam densities in Saatva Classic are lower than those in Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal the details, we were told the density of memory foam weighs at least 3 pounds per cubic foot, and the density of polyfoam of 1 1/2 pounds for each cubic foot.
This isn’t as great as those of the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm in an innerspring mattress and especially ones in this price range. Contrary to foam mattresses the steel coils of this mattress provide extra support and quilting could help prevent body impressions.
However, as the following Reddit post indicates, some sleepers have had more success with their Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others. We believe this is based on the sleeper’s size and shape. As with all thick Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress, the more you weigh, the more you risk getting imprints and sagging over time.
So you’ll want to rotate your mattress diligently at least once every six months. You should also sleep over your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We could find just 39 reviews from owners that were of high quality (those that weren’t to be fake or ambiguous, and that were posted in the past, both in the years 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size is relatively small, we think it’s notable that nearly 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other online mattress companies.
We also noticed that six reviewers mentioned sagging as an issue; one of these reviewers was weighing more than 200lbs while the others had a lower weight or did not mention. All but one had owned the mattress for over an entire year prior to the date they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is essential and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings may want to consider a mattress with intrinsically more-durable latex foam like that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it for: All-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who prefer a memory foam that holds, as opposed to engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model could be ideal for sleepers on the side. This version, called Firm is intended to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might also find the Firm to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
The way it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in; it’s the firm (which we’ve tested only in the showroom) is firmer.
What we like: The 12-inch-thick Loom & Leaf comes with a sturdy, quilted cover similar to that you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). This cover comes with its own foam padding that adds more depth to the normally single-note squishiness that is common to memory-foam mattresses. I have slept on the Relaxed firm at home for over a week, and I liked that it was cuddly and substantial at the same time. My husband, who likes firm mattresses and weighs just less than 200 pounds, which is 70 pounds more than me-thought it was too soft.
Whereas most online mattresses have a memory-foam density in the 3-pounds-per-cubic-foot range, the Loom & Leaf’s top layer has a 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot density with a gel-infused layer meant to assist with cooling (though cooling features like gel and perforations tend to have minimal impact). The mattress also has a 5-pounds-per-cubic-foot memory-foam layer underneath that top layer. Given those specs it is our opinion that this mattress will be less likely to slump or form body indentions as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though perhaps not when you weigh over 250 pounds; check reviews from owners below). Like any foam mattress, it provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000), and twenty-one out of 29 users prefer the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a popular reason; a few described it as being less “cushioned.” When we test against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were split (18 for the Wave and sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feel or liked the feel of its quilting while those who went with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support , and it was more supportive. Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We are also pleased it that Loom & Leaf, like all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses is delivered unboxed, by movers. That means you don’t have to air it out, like the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing has likely already occurred within the factory.
The thing we don’t like about HTML0: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels are at a minimum, a few degrees apart. While the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than the other popular models on the internet (such like the Leesa and the Casper), it’s not as robust as the hybrid (like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leave’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised in the top layer I slept a bit warm on the mattress, which was a surprise since I’m usually cold. Given that it was the middle of the winter season, I don’t care any of it. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the longevity that the foam has, but probably only slightly. Because the Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 tons per cubic foot it will still prove more durable than the typical $1,000-or-less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 high-quality, recent owner reviews for this model of the Loom & Leaf. Similar to the Saatva Classic, excellent customer service is a standout in the glowing reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020 reviews, more people said that this Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too smooth.” However, it’s hard to make a conclusion about its feel. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d ordered one of the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
We also noticed that reviewers who are heavier tend to refer to the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. For instance, we found complaints on Reddit about it being too soft or even saggy. Relaxed Firm version sagging for those who weigh around 250 pounds. If this is you, you might try using the Firm version (though, again, it’s very stiff) as well as alternatively, the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, think about an alternative like the Zenhaven, which is built with more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who it’s to be used for Its latex foam Zenhaven will suit those that sleep at any angle, particularly those who like a supple cushion that doesn’t give the “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also suitable for all types of people and sizes, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feels The foam mattress can be turned over and comes with handles that allow you to pick between two options: Its Luxury Plush aspect is at the softer end of the medium-firm spectrum, and it’s good for side-sleepers. The Gentle Firm side offers a slightly more firmer feeling (the firm claims it’s around 20 percent more firmer, and that is what we think it is).
We like this: The Zenhaven is made up of two latex layers (one of which is zoned to provide pressure points and lower back support although this could not be useful according to your body size and where you sleep on your mattress). Latex is a type of foam that comes from the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much more durable than polyurethane or memory foam, and so we think this mattress is durable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love that the Zenhaven is specifically made out of Talalay latex, which feels more supple than the Dunlop latex commonly found in stiffer, less expensive latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. Both the luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel springy without being flexible. The bed as a whole is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I slept on the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a soft feeling (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush aspect of the Zenhaven has gotten more comfortable to me. After using it for a few weeks, I came to appreciate its supple smooth surface, with a slight springiness and the cushioned cradle.
My son, who is 10, enjoys climbing on it and the Zenhaven’s motion-isolation feature does not stop me from being a bit uncomfortable about it. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements at night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is better than that of most foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who weighs barely 200 pounds and rests with his back on, has found Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven as more substantial and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Firm or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, and not in a box, so you’re less likely give off that fresh-mattress smell to your home. You can switch between the more soft luxury Plush side and Gentle Firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs shift, or if don’t know which level you’d like. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is 130 kilograms), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out with one-time “courtesy” flip.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has an suppler feel than other online all-latex mattresses but it’s less luxurious as comparable innersprings as well as traditional foam mattresses due to the fact that it’s not typically “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) employees who enjoyed it more than other models in our test of 2020 the hybrid and foam mattresses said they were pleased its firmness, and they thought it would last a long time. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Since the Zenhaven is particularly heavy and two-sided and two-sided, it must be placed on a solid, high-quality platform bed or a frame and boxspring in good shape. Saatva offers a frame with a boxspring (which comes in two heights) as well as a frame made of steel.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We were able to locate just 18 reviews from owners of high-quality for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample to draw any firm, non-subjective conclusions in addition to excellent customer service. However, we did discover an extremely descriptive blog post from a long-term owner of unknown weight (though he did claim that the height was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He said that, after a year and a half, he still loved its cushion and durability however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattressregularly, he noticed a hip impression; when he started rotating the mattress once every six months, he said the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this page once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who is it intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who value the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s great for back and stomach sleepers and those who toss and turn a lot. It’s durable enough for most people, not just those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch latex and coil hybrid is in the middle of medium-firm. It’s distinctly buoyant and a touch bouncy, with some cushioning and cradling. It’s certainly not luxurious however, and it’s more comfortable to sleep on the mattress than within it.
What we like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, made out of cotton, as well as wool (a natural flame retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly used on upholstery or traditional-style innerspring mattresses) is a form of strong stitching which holds the layers together Some argue that it is more durable than glue and eliminates the chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. Its peaks as well as valleys created by the tufting may also reduce any visible body impressions, and more so than the sock-covered, smooth-topped mattresses you typically see in hybrids sold online.
Although most hybrids use an layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils, this one Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, when compared with the pricier Casper Wave, which uses only half the amount). Latex is naturally more durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, utilized in the Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and soft-feeling foam than the Dunlop varieties that are typically found in lower-priced latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months at home. She found it to be very supportive and sturdy. “It feels like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning, but it’s not luxurious in the way that a luxurious mattress would be.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant and springy sensation that was reminiscent of an innerspring. She was never stuck. However, the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. The edge support is superb thanks to the thick (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the edges.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and coils, this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses or hybrids made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to be hot at night, found it to be cooler than the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t yet tested it during summer.
We haven’t seen enough quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll keep you updated as we find.
We don’t love: Though the coils are individually wrapped, there’s still a touch of motion transfer due to, well, coils. It’s minimal compared with movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, but it’s much more prominent than on all-foam options such as the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, such as the Tempur-Adapt or the Leesa Hybrid, with around 1,000). If a mattress is made up of fewer coils, it can mean that the mattress won’t adjust in your shape. However, the supple feel from the soft latex can make more up for it.
As Wendy has experienced, it’s true that the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh kind of mattress. It’s like it’s lifting you, instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide enough pressure relief to side sleepers, or even to back-sleepers who require extra cushioning for particular joints.
Wendy who sleeps on her back and sides, reported that she sometimes felt sore in her shoulders and lower back following her sleep on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more comfortable, you may be interested in one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in different firmness levels, including ones that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is topped with decorative yarn tassels. They look lovely, but are apparently flimsily attached as some of them that were on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Mattress Youtube
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire is an adjustable-air bed, consisting of foam placed on top of air chambers, that can be set to your preferred firmness level with the remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however we’ll update this guide when we’ve had the chance to. While we wait, let us talk about what we know about the Solaire.
Saatva launched the Solaire in 2019 to be able to compete with the Sleep Number’s top-of-the-line i8 bed. Apart from air chambers as well as a remote The Solaire is equipped with a pillow top, a Talalay latex layer, as well as the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also $650 cheaper over the Sleep Number’s i8.
The remote comes with 50 options, compared with Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but it’s hard to say whether anyone really needs this many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, of course we won’t be able to tell what we’re getting until we lay down on the mattress. Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity However, because Sleep Number does not provide details on its foam components, it isn’t possible to say that one bed has more durability than another.
If you decide to go with either a twin or a king size, or something else in between, you can order Solaire Solaire in any size you want as an ordinary model. If you decide to go with either a queen or a King, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split king, all of which come with two air chambers, so sleep partners can pick their own level of firmness.
The standard model is compatible with all bed frames (including adjustable bases). The Upper-Flex queen King, as well as the split-king models are made to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases, which allow both sides to be adjusted independently.
Saatva Company offers adjustable frames. Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, which include those with the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the frame’s upper-flex, couples can utilize a remote to place their heads and shoulders individually (for example, one of them can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads or reads a book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed to fit the split-king Solaire will also permit both to elevate their lower bodies independently. We couldn’t find enough high-quality owner reviews to include here however we’ll be updating this guide when we’re in a position to test the bed for ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Mattress Youtube
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD, a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300-500 pounds. We haven’t yet tested the product yet but we’re planning to do so in the future.
Like the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer however the firm layer of foam underneath and coils allegedly support greater weight.We’re particularly interested in the HD’s pillow top, since experts have told us that, for heavier people pillows can be particularly prone to indentations.
The HD’s other components, however, seem promising as far as durability is concerned: There is a latex layer, which is typically stronger than memory foam, as well as a memory-foam layer, which has a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (more than the 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot minimum that experts typically recommend for people who weigh over 200 pounds). Additionally, the HD’s 12 1/2 -gauge coils are more dense than those in the other models from the company as well as the coils in rival models including The Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only factors that determine the mattress’s longevity as well as its durability on its own doesn’t make for an appealing mattress. We plan on investigating these questions further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses that are suitable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” that you put this mattress on a sturdy platform bed that has vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you should purchase the HD together with the “high durability” wooden-slat base.Again, we spotted very few positive reviews from users. Once we’ve gathered enough to identify any trends and for a mattress test, we’ll send an update. Saatva Mattress Youtube
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers and a mattress that can grow along with a kid.
One side of the mattress is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of zoned polyfoam with density ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the other side, designed for kids older than that (the company states that it’s for that the age range is 8-12) the density of foam ranges from 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the more firm side in the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin up to 350 when a twin is XL, and 462 for a full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. Those who prefer natural materials may appreciate the fact that the mattress is encased in a quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress as we haven’t found any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it in the future for a guide to mattresses for kids.
The Saatva Youth The company’s new bed made of coils and foams for children is priced higher than mattresses designed for adults. But it’s dual-sided, with an inner coil sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can expand with the child.
Its first layer is designed for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of polyfoam zones with density ranging from 1.4 up to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, designed for kids older than that (the company claims ages 8 through 12) the foam density is 1.5 tons per cubic feet. It’s also a bit less softer since it’s coupled with the firmer part of the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 for a twin-XL. They also go up to 462 for the full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. For those who prefer natural materials, will appreciate the fact that the mattress is encased in a quilted, thick organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress as we haven’t found any reviews on the internet.
We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide to kids’ mattresses. Saatva Mattress Youtube
